Profile failed verification due to error (12) login failed, failed to access sendesktop with given credentials, Error code: 401


Component: UIMXDK


The following should be reviewed to verify the connection:

- Is the probe installed local to the xendesktop environment?

If yes make sure that there is a key called localhost and is set to true in the Raw Configure interface > Resources section.  

- Is the probe installed in the same domain as the xendesktop environment?

If not it must be. 

- Is the realm in the krb5.conf correct, and is it all in uppercase?

Perform the following to get the values for updating the template file:

echo %userdnsdomain% 

Also the realm must be entered in all caps.

- Make sure the nimsoft robot watcher service on the probe machine been configured to use the same account that is being used in the profile.

- Make sure that the user that you are using is part of the Administrators and Performance Log Users groups on the xendesktop machine.

- Make sure that the user has been added a Read Only Administrator in Citrix Studio.

- Validate the winrm configuration (example):

winrm identify -r:http://winrm_server:5985 -auth:kerberos -u:user_name -p:password -encoding:utf-8

- Make sure that "Get-ExecutionPolicy" in PowerShell returns "RemoteSigned".

- Make sure that "winrm get winrm/config/service" shows "AllowUnencrypted = true" and "Kerberos = true"

- Make sure that "winrm get winrm/config/client" shows the trusted host or *.

- Make sure that "winrm get winrm/config/winrs" shows "MaxMemoryPerShellMB = 1024"

- Make sure that "winrm e winrm/config/listener" shows the "Address = *" and the "Transport" is consistent with the connection method being used.
